Olmo: THREE LION PLAYS FOR CHILDREN (The Lion Calls a Meeting,
The Lion Foiled, The Lion in Love).
Translated by Carys Evans-Corrales. 1997.
Based respectively on a fable by Jean La Fountaine, a short story from the Panchatantra, and an Aesop fable, these thought-provoking children's plays are of interest to adults as well. They blend fantasy and humor and suggest a dynamic, highly visual staging that invites the audience to participate. The plays, which have been frequently staged in Spain and Latin America, range from eleven to four characters and require one, simple set each.
